Wiltshire Council Shared Ownership
Can I buy more shares?
Depending on the terms of your lease you may be able to buy more shares when you can afford to. This is known as 'staircasing'. You may be entitled to staircase to 100% meaning that you will own the whole of the property and no longer be required to pay rent.
The cost of any further share will depend on the market value of your home at that particular time. To assess this, we will arrange for a valuation to take place, but you will need to cover the valuation fees. The price of the additional share you want to purchase will be calculated on this new valuation.
